    I couldn't resist!
    Does anyone know what I have? I got 5 more buff orphingtons and 5 unkown just for the variety. [​IMG]

    I will show 2 views of each.
    There are 2 of these. They have a chipmonk stripe on their back.

    This was the last 1 of this one. It is darker than the buffs and lighter underneath. Not as dark as a RIR though.

    Sorry!
    Not sure whats up with photobucket. Wouldn't let me change size.

    I think that they are SLW (Silver Laced Wyandotte) chicks. Here is a picture of mine when they were one week old.

    Does that mean I have 2 roos and 2 pullets? [​IMG]

    I thought the last 1 might be too light to be a RIR and to dark to be a BO?

    It is just a hatchery RIR....probably Production strain. I had RIR from TSC looked just like that.
    Good Luck with them!
